Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone. It is a treat in more ways than one - a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches is accompanied by warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, as well as a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macaroons.
Accompanied by a vast tea menu including a selection of exclusive single estate teas, enjoy tea at your leisure in fine surroundings and experience the superior service for which The Milestone is renowned.
Also take the opportunity to discover the rich history of The Milestone Hotel, extending back to 1689 and once home to Ambassadors and Barons.
Traditional Afternoon Tea
Our traditional Afternoon Tea is the perfect balance of sweet and savoury and
features three tiers of sandwiches, French pastries and fruit and plain scones.
Our finger sandwiches include Smoked Scottish salmon and cream cheese, freerange
egg mayonnaise and Hampshire watercress, roast ham and English mustard,
Mull of Kintyre Cheddar and tomato, cucumber and Greek yoghurt and chicken
mayonnaise with chopped almonds.
A warm selection of freshly-baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream
and homemade strawberry preserve with a pot of tea of your choice, served with
milk or lemon. And last but not least, a mouth-watering selection of tea pastries.
Little Prince and Princess Tea
We believe Afternoon Tea should not just be reserved for adults, so here at The Milestone Hotel we have designed a special Little Prince and Princess Afternoon Tea menu for our younger guests complete with a delicious milkshake.
We will be delighted to accommodate your Afternoon Tea with any special dietary requirements that you and your guests may have, including vegetarian sandwiches, gluten free breads, pastries and scones. If requested, please note that we will endeavour to ensure that there are no nuts in the Afternoon Tea offering – however all products are produced in an environment where nuts are used and we cannot guarantee that our food is 100% free from nuts or nut traces.
